    • 3D forest fire propagation simulation 

      Köse K.; Grammalidis, N.; Yilmaz, E.; Çetin, E. (2008)
      The increase in the number of forest fires in the last few years dispatch governments to take precautions. Besides prevention, early intervention is also very important in fire fighting. If the firefighters know where the ...
    • Analysis of design parameters in safety-critical computers 

      Ahangari, H.; Atik, F.; Ozkok, Y. I.; Yildirim, A.; Ata, S. O.; Ozturk, O. (IEEE Computer Society, 2018)
      Nowadays, safety-critical computers are extensively used in many civil domains like transportation including railways, avionics, and automotive. In evaluating these safety critical systems, previous studies considered ...
    • Comparison of two image-space subdivision algorithms for direct volume rendering on distributed-memory multicomputers 

      Tanin, E.; Kurç, T.M.; Aykanat, C.; Özgüç, B. (Springer Verlag, 1996)
      Direct Volume Rendering (DVR) is a powerful technique for visualizing volumetric data sets. However, it involves intensive computations. In addition, most of the volumetric data sets consist of large number of 3D sampling ...
    • ConceptMap: mining noisy web data for concept learning 

      Golge, E.; Duygulu, P. (Springer Verlag, 2014)
      We attack the problem of learning concepts automatically from noisy Web image search results. The idea is based on discovering common characteristics shared among subsets of images by posing a method that is able to organise ...
    • A Contextualist Analysis of Insults 

      Berkovski, Y. S. (Springer Verlag, 2017)
      For a predicate expression F contained in a sentence S (‘x is F’) to count as an insult, it should be used in a situation having a number of contextual elements. There should be an audience to whom the utterance of S is ...
    • Data-parallel web crawling models 

      Cambazoglu, B. B.; Turk, A.; Aykanat, C. (Springer, 2004)
      The need to quickly locate, gather, and store the vast amount of material in the Web necessitates parallel computing. In this paper, we propose two models, based on multi-constraint graph-partitioning, for efficient ...
    • Efficient parallel spatial subdivision algorithm for object-based parallel ray tracing 

      Aykanat, C.; İşler, V.; Özgüç, B. (Pergamon Press, 1994)
      Parallel ray tracing of complex scenes on multicomputers requires the distribution of both computation and scene data to the processors. This is carried out during preprocessing and usually consumes too much time and memory. ...
    • A multi-sensor network for the protection of cultural heritage 

      Grammalidis, N.; Çetin, E.; Dimitropoulos, K.; Tsalakanidou F.; Kose, K.; Gunay O.; Gouverneur, B.; Torri, D.; Kuruoglu, E.; Tozzi, S.; Benazza, A.; Chaabane F.; Kosucu, B.; Ersoy, C. (2011)
      The paper presents a novel automatic early warning system to remotely monitor areas of archaeological and cultural interest from the risk of fire. Since these areas have been treasured and tended for very long periods of ...
    • Multicriteria inventory classification using a genetic algorithm 

      Guvenir, H. A.; Erel, E. (Elsevier, 1998)
      One of the application areas of genetic algorithms is parameter optimization. This paper addresses the problem of optimizing a set of parameters that represent the weights of criteria, where the sum of all weights is 1. A ...
    • rtPS uplink scheduling algorithms for IEEE 802.16 networks 

      Erturk, M.C.; Akar, N. (2008)
      IEEE 802.16 MAC provides flexible bandwidth allocation and QoS mechanisms for users with different requirements. However, QoS scheduling is not specified by the 802.16 standard and is thus left open for vendors' implementation. ...
    • Visual transformation aided contrastive learning for video-based kinship verification 

      Dibeklioglu, H. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Inc., 2017)
      Automatic kinship verification from facial information is a relatively new and open research problem in computer vision. This paper explores the possibility of learning an efficient facial representation for video-based ...
    • WiSAP: a wireless personal access network for handheld computing devices 

      Bisdikian, C.; Bhagwat, P.; Gaucher, B. P.; Janniello, F. J.; Naghshineh, M.; Pandoh, P.; Korpeoglu, I. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 1998)
      New short-range wireless communication technologies would enable environment-aware, mobile, personal area networks. These new technologies will serve as enablers for ubiquitous, low-cost, low-complexity, small-sized ...
